Physics 504 The Rocket Project

  1. 1. The Rocket Project
  2. 2. Physics 504 Rocket Project Overview Name: ___________Due: _____________________Purpose: To design and construct a series of rockets that can perform the following functions: Free standing Launch Nose cone deploys Parachute deploys Waterproof Re-usable Modifiable Aerodynamic design.Materials: rocket engine, igniter, plug, wadding (supplied) Paper tube, decorations, nosecone (student)Procedure: Watch Mr. Mac’s launch. Gather materials and construct rocket. Draw multi-view diagram of rocket Measure data pre-launch Calculate theoretical height Check by Mr. Mac that the above is done satisfactorily Launch and measure actual height Analyse results and record Re-design rocket based on WWW/EBI Complete draft and final data/calculation sheets Self - evaluate Prepare report - individual Prepare and give presentation - groupCalculations: On sheets providedReport: Your report will include: The good copies of sheets The draft copies of sheets The diagrams of each version of the rocket Conclusions of what makes a good rocket, the design changes your rocket went through. Recommendations for your next rocket this year
